Park History


Friends of Beacon Hill Park

The goal of Friends of Beacon Hill Park is "To Promote & Protect the Natural & Cultural History of Beacon Hill Park."

Beacon Hill Park was set aside as parkland by Governor Sir James Douglas before 1858.

The park is a historical treasure and one of the last refuges in Greater Victoria for some of the area's most delicate and endangered native plants and ecosystems. The Garry Oak tree and the Garry Oak meadow are two prime examples of the plants and ecosystems that the Friends of Beacon Hill Park Society are actively trying to preserve.

The 28th Annual Camas Day was held on Sun Apr 14, 2019. As always, we had a varied slate of popular walks. Click Camas Day 2019 to see the schedule. Of course, Beacon Hill Park is enjoyable to visit every day of the year.

Wildflowers Signs in Beacon Hill Park

There are 3 large wildflower signs created by the Friends of Beacon Hill Park in the area along Circle Drive between the Petting Zoo and the Totem Pole. You can use the signs to help you learn about the flowers that are currently blooming in the meadow.
